I didn't. I must confess it's been somewhile since I searched. But, having looked, it's still does not give any evidence that anyone actually _uses_ Babm. It's seems just exceprts from Fushiki Okamoto's publication of 1962. It was, however, a surprise to see it on a site dealing with constructed auxlangs. It shows a greater awareness of the diversity of auxlang solutions that those sites that confine themselves merely to "Euroclones". What I was thinking of by a Babm home-page was one maintained by some person or group that is actively using & promoting Babm. AFAIK there isn't such a web-site. --------------------------------------------------------------------- At 2:43 pm -0400 18/5/01, Oskar Gudlaugsson wrote: [snip]

a_priori - a bit in the same style as the 'philosophic' auxlangs of the 17th century. If you haven't already done so - and I suspect you have - take a look at the URL John gives above.
